''Jackpot Bowling'' - 19 December 1960?

Published 1960

An episode of "Jackpot Bowling", an NBC series in which professional bowlers competed against each other. Hosted by Milton Berle. There is also a celebrity guest, in this case Mort Sahl. Not sure why he is on a bowling show though. Please note that the picture quality is abysmal, in fact the picture quality is so bad you'll want your eyes to be gouged out by an Uchiha clan member. You have been warned. Complete with original cigar commercials.

Run time 29:35

Subject: Hard to imagine people watched this back in the day
I remember trying to watch this as a kid back in 1961. It was boring then (and it's boring now). I actually feel sorry for Milton Berle. However, he was a trooper; he was under contract with NBC ($100,000 per year) and he did what he was asked to do. From "Mr. Television" to this in just 10 years. It must have been quite dispiriting, both for Berle and his fans.
